Resort Wear - What to wear on a Resort Vacation


A typical resort vacation is seven to ten days with some extending out as far as two weeks.

Plan for a successful vacation -Make a travel list

You will typically have limited luggage on the plane unless you want to pay extra so careful planning is in order to ensure you have enough outfits for the day and night. Wearing the same dress twice will never be noticed if you accessorize it differently. Bring a minimum of two swimsuits, three is safer in case you damage one.

Resort Wear - For the most part, unlike a cruise, resort vacations are fairly casual and the dress codes are very limited which gives you a great deal of freedom when it comes to your dress code.


We will go into more detail below but here the resort wear basics:

  • Shorts or bikini cover up and top for breakfast.

  • Bikini or swimsuit all day.

  • Lunch - Bikinis or swimsuits are typically acceptable for outdoor patio restaurants at the resort but cover ups are required with footwear for the indoor restaurants.

  • A comfy cover up as the sun starts to drop over the horizon.

  • A sexy dress for dinner and evening wear.

  • Depending on the resort, you may want to pack a sexy dress or outfit for dancing also.

  • Shorts and tops for day trips.

Thongs and G strings are also acceptable and pretty much common place, but the resort does prefer you wear a cover up when walking around the resort, tanning in a thong or g string around the pool area is acceptable but out of respect stay away from the family and children's pools. When on the beach, you are good to go and can freely stroll anywhere.

Final Words of Advice for your Resort Vacation

  1. 1)       Pack a carry-on bag with one outfit, a swimsuit and your essentials. Luggage does get lost and if you have the minimum basics with you, shopping for a couple of essentials while you are waiting for your luggage to show up will not be as stressful. Most important, don't let the temporary loss of your luggage ruin your cruise, go with the flow, it will usually show up on the next flight.

  2. 2)      Lock your wallet and passport in the room safe and only keep enough money on you that you intend to spend.

  3. 3)      Use a hidden pouch to keep your money out of plain view.

  4. 4)      When on day trips, keep your clothing simple, t-shirts with funny sayings or logos might not only be offensive to the local community but advertise you are a tourist.

  5. 5)      Don't wear extravagant jewelry when you are away from the resort. This will attract unwanted attention and cold have a disastrous outcome.

  6. 6)      When sightseeing, be careful when entering churches and temples, many will enforce a strict dress code so long shorts, loose skirts and tops with long sleeves are the safest approach.

  7. 7)      Last but not least, relax, enjoy and respect other resort guests. Many people meet lifelong friends at resorts. The combined experience of open ocean air and daily cocktails will make your vacation a memorable one.
